Accusations of medical malpractice and mistreatment of patients

DC readers know that doctors have a responsibility to protect the health and well-being of their patients, making every effort to bring healing and prevent harm. Failure to do this can lead to medical and legal complications and, in some instances, are valid grounds for a medical malpractice claim. A dental group in another state has been accused of these actions, as well as fraud.

This particular dental clinic said they were dedicated to serving children and claims that no complaints have been filed. The clinic's doctors and nurses are accused of recommending and performing unnecessary procedures, even without parental consent, including root canals and extractions. The parents of one boy claim that the doctor performed two root canals without any anesthesia.

In addition to these claims, multiple children became infected as a result of the unsafe water used by the clinic. After many children were diagnosed with infections and abscesses, authorities tested the water and found that it contained mycobacteria. It is thought that hundreds of children could be victims of this unsafe water and these dangerous medical practices. 

This frightening example of one dental clinic serves as a reminder of what can happen when doctors are allegedly only concerned with profit and high patient turnover instead of patient care. When DC parents believe that their children have suffered due to the errors, mistakes or negligence of health care professionals, they may have grounds for medical malpractice claims. Taking legal action is an appropriate, reasonable response to this, and securing financial compensation can cover any additional medical bills and treatment needs.
